Yesterday was my dear granddaughter Lily's dance recital. She is sweet 10 year old , a joy to her Nana and Grandpa. I always make her a little nosegay as my mom made us for our recitals.
Not splashy like all the store bought bouquets they all get, her parents gave that, but made with love and I hope it will be a fond memory for her.
My friend The Tablescaper's 2 sweet daughters were in the recital too. It was LONG!
3 hours and 15 minutes. Lily's 3 little brothers, 7, 5 and 3 made it through thanks to the magic of DSi's.
Grandpa was near comatose by the end. He is tall and his knees were pressed up against the seat in front! Dear son revived him with a lovely dinner out to celebrate his birthday.
His 4 grandkids singing Happy Birthday to him brought the color back to his cheeks. A pint of Smithwick's helped too!
As the cherries were 1.99 on sale, I bought a slew of them. Seemed like a good idea at the time, but pitting them all was ,well, the pits!
I used my handy pitter, which collects the pits neatly in the bottom.
I made a Cherry, Cheese Crumb Cake in these cute little red ramekins. I can think of a lot of uses and holidays for them. I have white ones that are very similar, so with some blue I am all set for July 4th.
It was good!
And that's it for this Seasonal Sunday! Have a great week!
Thank you to The Tablescaper for hosting Seasonal Sundays!
